Remove the exhaust pipes from under the frame by these bolts. After removing the single top bolt and loosen the two on the clamp the exhaust will slide out.

At this point I'll place the bike on the center stand and secure a strap around the stand and around the engine guard to keep the bike from falling over while starting to remove the rear end assembley.

To remove the fuel tank remove the four bolts from the front and back of the fuel cell. Remove the lines and disconnect the electrical wires.

After removing the fuel tank it's starting to look pretty sad!!:sadguy:



From this point you can't go back. It starts to get fun now, the cutting is about to start soon.:ROFL:

Remove the four bolts inside the saddle bags and remove the wiring harness from the back side after removing bags.

Shock removal from under the seat. Remove the oil line from the shock. Make sure you have lower the shock first all the way to lowest point. I took the upper bolt loose from the frame that holds the swing arm up. Then removed the upper and lower shock bolts.

After removing shock the swing arm bolts can be taken out by the two allen bolts on each side. I'll want to save these due to using them again for the chevy rearend.

From removing the swing arm bolts the entire assenbly will slide right out with the drive line.

Next I will remove the trunk stay and cut the rear fender just in front of the mounting bolts

The upper part I will use and tie the shock mounts off them. I did get the weld done where I cut in the wrong place. I'm sure this won't be the only thing go wrong. When you're building from no instruction there are usually more issues that come up.:readit:
